**Wish List Coins**

Exonumia | Kepi

Hi everyone! I'm sure we all have those certain coins that we long for. They are on our "Wish List"... they're not totally out of reach, we just haven't quite bit the bullet yet and pushed that "Buy now" button. Two of those coins for me is a $20 Double Eagle Saint-Gaudens and the $50 Gold American Buffalo Bullion Coin. So in the meantime until I find those perfect coins that "talk" to me I have added these silver bullion examples to my collection. One of these days I'll blog about a newly acquired "Wish List" Gold Coin, but for now I hope you enjoy these silver beauties as I have. Whats your "special" coin that you hope to add to your collection in the future? Thanks for reading my blog. All comments are welcomed. ; )

**Collecting Buffalos again!**

Coins-United States | Kepi

I wanted to share this beautiful example of a Buffalo Nickel or as some people call them Indian Head Nickel. My husband surprised me with this today for no particular reason at all other than he thought it would boost back my interest into my Buffalo Nickel collection. I must admit that I have neglected them as I've been pursuing my other favorite coin, the Mercury Dime. When I saw my new Buffalo, I was so excited and remembered all over again why I loved this design so much! This one is a 1937-D. Graded by PCGS as a MS65...full of original luster and details. The reverse shows a beautiful strike of a buffalo with golden toning. There is a mintage of 17,826,000. The metal composition is .750 copper and .250 nickel. The diameter is 21.2 mm and the coin has a plain edge. I hope this has inspired you to think about a coin you've collected in the past that maybe you should take a second look at. Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome.

My very own " Hobo "..... Nickel that is!

Odd & Curious Money | Kepi

I'm so happy to be able to share this special coin with everyone! My husband attended 2015 Summer Seminar session two and not only had a great time and learned alot but also met a very talented and wonderful person...Tiny : ) I'm sure some of you who went to Summer Seminar are familiar with Tiny, quite the character and really helpful when it comes to the ANA. Tiny is also an artist to say the least and to make a long story a bit shorter...My husband, John, commissioned Tiny to carve a Hobo Nickel special for me! His artwork is amazing! Having only seen pictures of Hobo Nickels, I was truly honored and so excited to have one of my very own for my collection. Thank you John and Tiny! : )

**MY BUFFALO NICKEL DANSCO ALBUM COLLECTION 1913-1938**

Coins-United States | Kepi

Here is my "on-going" Buffalo Nickel collection in a Dansco Album. I've been working on this for about 2 years. I'm in no hurry to finish it, as then the "hunt" is over. I really like to look for Nickels with "character", toning etc. Does anyone else have albums in the works?

***BUFFALO COINS: AMERICA'S FAVORITE***

Library | Kepi

This is a wonderful book! Written by Q. David Bowers... (need I say more) Everything Buffalo, from coins, medals, paper money, history, culture and lots more! I bought this book when I started collecting Buffalo Nickels and it's packed full of great information! I would recommend it to anyone who's interested in Buffalo Numismatics and the American Bison in general. Have fun reading! And remember to always expand to your Numismatic library!

" CRAZY LEGS " COUNTERFEIT DETECTION

Coins | Kepi

"Counterfeit Detection Guide" . This is a great pocket guide written by Bill Fivaz. I used it while looking for a 3-Legged Buffalo Nickel. As you can see there are 4 main characteristics to a real 3-Legged Buffalo. The one, to me that really stands out is what looks like a "pee-pee" stream leading down from the Buffalo's belly to the ground. Also that 3rd leg is missing but the hoof remains.

MY 3 LEGGED BUFFALO " CRAZY LEGS "

Coins | Kepi

This is my 1937-D 3-Legged Buffalo Nickel! I've wanted one for so long and was finally able to get one! I call him " Crazy Legs " : ) This is the first slabbed coin I purchased and has been a great beginning to my coin collection! There are many counterfeits out there, so you have to be careful. Does anybody know what to look for? I'll tell you the answers on my next blog.
